Hong Kong is not China. Not better or worse, just different.

The Flight training Center at CXcity is the only airline training facility in the world where sims are superposed on 2 levels.
The building had to be specially designed, and although the sim rooms appear to be an integral part of the building, they have their own foundations and supporting structure. That way, the vibrations caused by the operation of the sims upstairs don't affect the rest of the building.
Of course, it's not an architectural fantaisie but was dictated by the price of real estate in HK, especially on reclaimed land...

The cabin trainers (seen in the last part of the video) are on the 7th floor of that building, in what they call the 'glass cathedral'. It's a pretty nice setup.

However, I thought that the meals for the flights were prepared in the Catering building near the airport...



Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit posting...

I had a chance to visit CX city and it is simply impressive. If I'm correct, the living arrangements for pilots, CX employees is managed by the Sofitel hotel group?

Also, I notice that one of the flight attendents is the CX safety demonstation video.

Excellent video. Thanks for sharing. That's an impressive facility there. I love to see the behind-the-scenes.

Interesting to see how the food seems to be packaged on an assembly line. But it comes out great everytime! Go Cathay!

A question for those who have been there.

Is this facility just for training, and food preparation? Or is it also the Corporate and Operational Headquarters.

Where is this place in Hong Kong?...is it near HKG?

Thanks!

Cathay City has everything from back offices to the training facilities to the simulators to the crew hotel. Cathay Catering is in a separate facility by the perimeter south of the airport.

This whole complex linked by the footbridge is Cathay City.

This is the catering facility.
